of immigration reform, the current debate, is employers will be held accountable. the obama administration had actually been enforcing the immigration laws, has been directorate number of audits and still the workplace audits as well. and holding employers accountable more than any previous administration. the legislation -- in order for it to function, there have to be take components. people need to be brought out of the shadows and allowed to apply for earned his citizenship and secondly, employers need to be held accountable, particularly from labor law violations. if employers know they can hire and exploit workers then get away with that, they will continue to do so even after we have immigration reform. labor law protection as a major component of enforcement of the laws is an extremely important deterrent to future unlawful immigration. host: story from politico earlier this month. senate stop on lower skilled workers. -- stuck on low-skilled workers. talk about this effort. guest: the issue of any future immigrants who come on employment-based visas is but that the fault line. chamber

that was blasted by the obama administration for our early reporting on benghazi and what we uncovered in the burned out wreckage in benghazi. so the idea that somehow we are not talking about bengahzi is just absurd. we do struggle in situations like this, because we want to call out politicians when they say things that are flat out untrue. with with congresswoman bachmann it's a double edged sword. she fund raises off this stuff. >> we can be transparent with viewers. your producers and us, we had a real discussion about this today because we know the more oxygen we give this the more bachma bachmann will raise money off of this. this is one example of a fund-raising notice she sends out. she's one of the most active fund raising e-mail lists. she sends out five-alarm notices to supporters, sometimes more than one e-mail a day warning that they have to contribute or her campaign will fall under the weight of democrats and the liberal media. that's what this one today said. this was on a different subject. i wouldn't be surprise fd she uses this program, this report and another one t
you breathing a sigh of relief? >> if you talk about the labor unions, and what the obama administration was doing with that, that is ridiculous. i'll fight with my fellow competitors even in south carolina to protect our right to work stat us in north carolina and my neighbors competing states, that very important. neil: regardless, both and other companies to look to right-to-work states, your own included, that is not disrupted by whatever problem it had? >> no. no, not at all. and the other thing, we have to be careful is not accept federal money, which also often requires union work hold, work. those are other things we have to fight, but we'll provide, good education, at our universities, two year community colleges. and great quality of life, second to none. neil: all right governor a pleasure thank you, sir. >> thank you very much. neil: all right, this just in dow hitting another record high, eking to it, but a gain is a gain, and a record is a record. another number you may not be looking at it be signalling this rally is about on be -- carterrized. neil: forget
, including a senior obama administration officials have stated, the very helicopter gunships that the regime is currently using to bomb and shatter civilians. as the united states and the international community stand idle, the consequences are clear -- syria will become a failed state in the heart of the middle east threatening both our ally, israel, and our nato ally, turkey. with or without assad, the country will continue to devolve into a full-scale civil war that is increasingly sectarian, repressive and unstable. meantime, more and more ungoverned space will come under the control of al qaeda and its allies. violence and radicalism will spill even more into lebanon and iraq, fueling sectarian conflicts that are still burning in both countries. syria will turn into a battlefield between sunni and shia extremists. even backed by foreign powers which will ignite sectarian tensions from north america to the gulf and risk a wider regional conflict. this is the course we are on in syria and in the absence of international action, the situation will only get worse. although secretary kerry a
700,000 are waiting more than a year. and the obama administration, the number of disability claims waiting over a year has gone up by 2,000%. if you're in new york or los angeles or reno, you're waiting over 600 days for the care and benefits that you deserve. that's why i'm in washington this week and that's why many iraq and afghanistan veterans are in washington. >> say that again if you will, paul. we've heard this, the numbers are becoming more outrageous by the month. what's happening at the v.a. is an absolute disgrace. please talk about, again, how long are wounded warriors having to wait for treatment and care in america? >> well, one of them with me here in washington this week is zach mccowan, he's been waiting 900 days. the system is broken, thousands of veterans are stuck in it. and nobody's really paying attention. we need the president's attention on this now. he's ended the iraq war, but he can't end the v.a. paperwork backlog. right now 97% of v.a. disability claims are on paper. in the year 2013, 97% are still on paper. this is a story this week that really needs
a major concern already for both the obama administration and netanyahu's administration. we do know according to a senior israeli official that i spoke with on condition of anonymity that this issue of the united states being asked to strike syria if certain things such as some of their weapons, missiles in particular are heading over the border to hezbollah, an organization in lebanon that the united states and israel both consider a terrorist organization. that is going to be something that is going to be on the agenda in the discussions. but this chemical weapon issue is one that they were going to be talking about beforehand. they also have talked about the difficulties if you speak with folks that know about how to get rid of some of the weapons, the difficulties of getting rid of chemical weapons, you cannot just do an air strike. you have to go in on the ground to pull those out. a very big concern. we've been on the border of the israel-syria border and been able to hear some of the fighting inside of syria. some of that fighting spilled over into israel. so definitely a ver
. but by then the philosophy of the obama administration is that it's going to be too late. so now is the opportunity that we are going to be hearing from our panelists and each of us will present a little bit of a different perspective on the panel about what happened that night and then i'll have some q&a interaction with them and we'll see if even if we cannot answer the questions for you, perhaps we can help people to understand what are the right questions so that some day wlrks it be a presidential candidate or a cnn moderator or senators having dinner with the president, maybe somebody can come up with the right questions to ask about benghazi and then hope and pray that some day we will get the proper answers. let me turn the time over to our panelists to let them make their remarks. roger. >> thank you very much congressman. please hold your applause. thank you very much. i have somebody paying attention up front. let me begin by making a very stark appraisal by what we learned from benghazi. and i just ask you to remember the famous commercials during the 2008 campaign about the 3:00 a.m. phone cal

administration. when you depart, you can pick up the presi to our last strategic report titled, obama ii and the middle east. strategic objectives for u.s. policy, jointly authored by two of the foremost thinkers about middle east policy and we're very proud that both of them are here at the washington institute. ambassador dennis ross and ambassador james jeffrey. ambassador ross of course we're about to hear from dennis, served throughout most of the first term, first in the state department and then in the white house with responsibility for overseeing all the national security council work in the middle east. ambassador jeffrey, jim jeffrey, completed his distinguished service in the diplomatic corps last year after having served in, as ambassador in turkey and in iraq. previously in an incarnation in albania and as the deputy national security advisor in the bush administration which he played a special role in addressing the iraq question. so we brought these two highly-experienced, strategic thinkers and policy practitioners together to produce a policy paper for the obama adminis

puts our nation on a sustainable course. it puts an end to the obama administration tosses roadblock to energy development and pave the way for projects like my colleague just mentioned, the keystone pipeline, which will generate more than 130,000 jobs, boost our economy, and bring down energy costs. the budget also promotes economic growth, job creation, supports research and development in the energy sector, and moves america to a more energy independent state. it expands oil and gas development, which could generate a half a million new jobs and $14.40 trillion in increased economic and art -- activity. by preventing or delaying domestic energy exploration, the obama administration has driven jobs overseas. in this budget, the house republicans in the subsidies, -- support for this budget translates into a response will plan to grow our economy and create jobs. i yield back my time. >> i would like to yield two minutes to the gentleman from indiana. >> thank you. what we are doing here today, people in america are hurting. to many parents have come hold -- come home and told their
. [applause] what have we seen from the obama administration? obama administration is sending the worst signal to the ayatollah at a most critical time. we talk. they enrich. they do not take us seriously. this leading from behind strategy, it is not working. think about the message we are sending. ignored the president the advice of his commanders, his own commanders, and rushed to the exits. what was the result? al qaeda is making a comeback in iraq. iran has become an important player in iraq. syria, we sat on the sidelines while over 70,000 circassians were slaughtered -- syrians were slaughtered, exceeding our power to the vetoes of the russians and chinese in the united nations to a bunch of bureaucrats. afghanistan, the president has undercut his commanders time and time again. the administration again and led from behind and never took steps to secure the weapons stash. do you know where those weapons are now? they are in the hands of islamic radicals in mali, egypt, and by terrorists to harm us and our allies. this administration has repeatedly undercut israel. how do you think our st
to a government crippled by international aid shortfalls and the obama administration last month unfroze hundreds of millions in assistance to the overnment of president mahmoud abbas that had been held up by kong. diane, democratic caller. are you saving for retirement? caller: i am. i had my money in the stock market when it crashed. i was very aggressive, because i was 45 -- between 45 and 50, and i thought i could be aggressive, because i was managing my own money and i lost almost all of my money in the stock market. it was really a bad thing. so i'm a realtor, so when i get money now, i set up an i.r.a. for myself, but i don't put it in the stock market. i put anytime something called lending club. so i put a little bit of money in there first to see what, you know, how it was and how it would go. and it went really well, so i dumped all my money in there and watched it grow. it's an amazing program. i hear a lot of people fearful about the stock market, and i can see why. host: diane, how do those lending clubs work? >> lending clubs, what it does is loan money to anybody that needs money.
on the record. the obama administration says that if that is true, that would be the red line the president has set in the past but they haven't said whether they have the intelligence evidence to prove it. i spoke to an israeli high government source who said we're not saying anything about that right now for good reason but they promised it would be part of the private conversations between the president and the prime minister. john and christine. >> john, it really does seem like this symbolic trip, was supposed to be a symbolic trip has brought in new urgency with what's going on in syria. let's bring in chris and katherine. >> i was wondering, what are you hearing from folks on the ground about iran? you know, the conversation between the president and the prime minister. is there some sense that there's going to be an announcement at the end of this trip one way or the other or is this all behind the scenes and we're not going to see anything publicly until later down the road? >> reporter: there's no question both leaders will talk about it because they will be asked about it when they h
. from the beginning the obama administration has prompted a batten down the hatches mentality in netanyahu's circle, end quote. joining us news is the author, aaron day-to-day millvid miller. he is now vice president and distinguished scholar at the woodrow wilson international center for scholars. good morning. >> good morning, carol. >> we often hear things aren't good between netanyahu and president obama, but how strained are they? >> you know, with the exception of david and dwight eisenhower whose relationship it was probably more strained and tense, this has got to be the most dysfunctional relationship between an american president and an israeli prime minister probably in the history of the relationship. that's saying quite a lot because you've had a couple of pretty dysfunctional pairs. i think the president frankly is in israel because of the intersection of politics on one hand and policy on the other. you know, being good on israel helps him politically with republicans who continue to hammer the fact that somehow he's anti-israel. even among members of his own pa
. while israel was out ahead of the obama administration in saying assad must go, you have to understand it's a little jittery in israel at this moment because they look to the south and what happened in egypt, the rise of the muslim brotherhood, given all the uncertainty of who and what would succeed assad if he were to fall, wolf. important the president and prime minister stay on the same page on this one. >> what do they expect to emerge from president obama's visit to israel this week? >> it's interesting. if you talk to key officials here in israel, talk to members of the palestinian leadership, most of them say at first, not much. they think the president's coming here because he has to, didn't come in the first four years. they think he's coming here because he wants to talk most importantly about the iran nuclear cooperation with netanyahu. they expect president obama to give diplomacy more time and expect the important conversation about syria. they don't expect a new peace initiative from the american president. on the one hand, in a sense, what took you so long, but in a brea
administration ever. barack obama, you lied. [ applause ] mr. president, we admit it, you won. accept it. now step away from the teleprompter and do your job. is it any wonder there's such a run on guns and ammo for christmas presents a couple months ago, considering politicians' attack on the second amendment. you should have seen what todd got me for christmas. well, it wasn't that exciting. it is a metal rack, a case for a hunting rifle to put on the back of a four wheeler, and then i had to get something for him to put in the gun case, rise? so this go around he has the rifle, i got the rack. [ cheers and applause ] oh, bloomberg is not around, our big gulp is safe, we're cool. shoot, it's just pop, with low cal ice cubes in it. i hope that's okay. my only piece of advice, because i am a mama, my only piece of advice to college republicans, you have to be thinking sam adams, not drinking sam adams. if these experts who keep losing elections, you keep getting rehired, raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck up or stay in the
of the reasons the obama administration said it's important to continue the spending by the united states here in israel. $3 billion a year in aid and the president got a tour of what some of that money bought. an iron dome missile defense system that had been very effective in guarding southern israeli cities against rockets coming out of gaza. that's one of the things the president has pointed to saying i support israel. i support israel's security and safety by spending money on the iron dome. the charm offensive continues later today. there is going to be a number of ceremonies, a number of private meetings and tomorrow, president obama takes his message directly to the israeli people. he has a speech televised heres0 college students where it's thought he is going to try and make his sell on his views not only on iran, but also on the palestinians and the greater middle east issues here in jerusalem. he's got an uphill battle. now a current poll in israel shows only 10% of israelis say they, quote, like the president. back to you in new york. >> steve: lee land vittert live where he's tal
drill. the interceptors were originally proposed by the bush administration, but president obama stopped their deployment. allen west outraged that the reversal means millions of taxpayer dollars will be wasted. >> right now we see ourselves trying to play catch-up to the tune of some, i believe, about 240, $250 million to get those first response deterrent factors back up to the west coast. >> at a time we have to borrow that money from china who are friends with north korea so we can defend ourselves against north korea. that's schizophrenic. >> alisyn: the white house defends this as logical timing. >>> they saved a child drowning in a river. now the two people, the heros who went in after that little boy are missing. the six-year-old fell into the river inned south dakota. witnesses say a man and woman jumped in and got caught. several people tried to help, including this man. >> tried to pull them. we had them. there was three of us that had them. he had a kid. he had the kid with him. he just slipped. >> alisyn: the foam from the waterfall apparently making it incredibly difficult
eight years of the bush administration. the republicans have forced 30 filibuster votes on president obama's nominations and apparently they say they're just getting started. not to mention the national labor relations board. we could go on and on. let's turn now to former senator tom daschle who is the former majority leader for the democrats and author of the book "the u.s. senate." tom, great to see you, good to have you with us tonight. >> great to be with you, ed. >> you bet. well, in your book, the u.s. senate, what do you say about filibusters now? >> well, it's been abused, you're absolutely right. the numbers speak for themselves. we have more than twice as many cloture votes in the last congress, ed, as we did in the 50-year period between 1917 and 1967. that was a time during the civil rights era and vietnam and all of the other things we faced. twice as many in two years as we did in 50. that's all you need to know about the abuse of filibusters today. >> yeah. you're a close friend, worked with him for years, harry reid, what should he do? what can he do? >> well, harry'
and alexander president obama reaffirmed this commitment stating i recognize that nuclear modernization requires investment for the long-term. that is my commitment to the congress. that is my -- that my administration will pursue these programs and capabilities for as long as i'm president. can you tell us where we are on the efforts to modernize our triad and our nuclear infrastructure and are we on pace to comply with the president's commitment? >> sir, i can tell you that through the submission of the 2013 president's budget, with some exceptions that i told you about, there were parts of the business that the program didn't close, if you'll recall that, excuse me, from last year. but the 2013 budget continued the modernization efforts across the board. some were later than others but it continued the modernization efforts. the 2013 budget turned into a c.r. i don't know what the remainder of the year is going to bring to us in terms of the 2013 piece of this. the 2014 piece we have worked pretty hard over the last year to structure it so it would also continue all of the things that you men
administrative jobs. we expect them to get into legislative work later this afternoon, about 3:45, after a visit from president obama. he's meeting with house democrats this afternoon at 2:15. and senate republicans at about 12:30, half an hour or sow. we'll take you live to the house floor here on c-span. the speaker: the house will be in order. the prayer will be offered today by our guest chaplain, reverend ezekiel piper of hartland evangelical church, entral city, nebraska. the chaplain: our father in heaven, by your sovereign hand you make all nations, kingdoms and empires. you raise up their leaders and ordain the rules by which they govern. you alone are righteous in all your judgments, so it is you that we trust and desire to imitate. lord, help the honorable men and women of the house of representatives lead by persuasion, kindness and reason according to your scriptures. equip and guide them to craft laws, resolutions and amendments that will accomplish your will for our nation. by your spirit, help them carry out these noble responsibilities with wisdom and integrity. i also ask that
colleagues have joined together on both sides of the aisle to send a letter to president obama commending his trip to israel and also asking him to use it as an opportunity to continue to put the impra mature of the administration on a strong u.s.-israeli relationship. we also urged the president to continue to make sure that all options are on the table as it relates to iran and their nuclear am missions, and that we should continue to adopt a policy of prevention and not containment. mr. roskam: similarly, we said we need to protect israel's military edge and israel's inherent right to defend itself, and also recognize that the israeli-palestinian peace process can only be achieved and advanced through direct negotiations without preconditions. finally, we said that the president must taintain foreign aid to israel as well as find funding for israeli-made anti-missile defense systems. in a nutshell we urged the president to use this as a time to highlight our relationship with the nation of israel because it makes all the sense in the world and it's the foundation upon which prosperity can
